On Aug. 23, 2013, the Fort Myers Film Festival (FMff) announced that it will continue its popular "Missed it Mondays" series on Monday, Aug. 26. The indie film screened will be "The Invisible Men." The film is directed by Yariv Mozer.
"'The Invisible Men' tells the untold story of persecuted gay Palestinians who have run away from their families and are now hiding illegally in Tel Aviv.
Their stories will be told through the film's heroes: 1) Louie, 32 years old, a gay Palestinian who has been hiding in Tel Aviv for the past 8 years 2) Abdu, 24 years old, who was exposed as gay in Ramallah and then accused of espionage and tortured by Palestinian security forces and 3) Faris, 23 years old, who escaped to Tel Aviv from the West Bank after his family tried to kill him.
The men's only chance for survival is to seek asylum outside Israel and Palestine and leave their homelands forever behind (see trailer)." - FMff
The event is sponsored by Hampton Inn, Bennett's Fresh Roast Coffee, Twisted Vine, Market Earth, Firestone's and All About Closets.
After "The Invisible Men," more films will be shown the following Monday evenings.
